Foo Fighters - Wasting Light: Their best since Colour and Shape.
Foo Fighters - Medium Rare: Excellent all around.
Architecture In Helsinki - Moment Bends: While I do not see myself listening regularly, it is far more accessible.
Andrew WK - Party All The Goddamn Night: Showing glimpses as a true successor to I Get Wet. #fingerscrossed
Yeasayer - Odd Blood: A little too avant garde.
Surfer Blood - Astro Turf: Just enough good to keep me interested.
The Strokes - Angles: I've tried, but I think it's time to give up on them.
Smith Westerns - Smith Westerns: I'd have to be in a shoegaze kind of mood to listen again.
She And Him - Volume 2: To adequately follow up a surprisingly good debut is a remarkable feat.
Walter Schriefels - An Open Letter To The Scene: One of the most dependable singer-songwriters delivers again.
Rural Alberta Advantage - Departing: Third time's the charm for this always-promising band.
Rolling Stones - Forty Licks; Less-than-expected filler makes for a good compilation.
Rival Schools - Pedals: Very overdue. Almost worth it.
Lou Reed - Transformer: So many good New Wave albums, so little time.
Ratatat - LP4: Their least-compelling album yet.
Radiohead - King Of Limbs: Extremely passive and almost instantly forgettable.
REM - Collapse Into Now: Extremely solid, but not likely to enter rotation.
Tom Petty - Mojo: Glimpses of mojo.
Of Montreal - The Controlling Sphere: I'm becoming increasingly disinterested.
Noah And The Whale - Last Night On Earth: Another great summer time releaxing album.
Nightmares For a Week - Don't Die: I hope this band doesn't die before putting out the great album I think it's capable of.
Mumford And Sons - Sigh No More: One could do much, much worse if they are looking for a little poppy folk in their lives.
Mountain Man - Grief: More avant garde, but less compelling.
Mountain Man - One: Solid follow-up to an angry and loud demo.
Mountain Goats - All Eternals Deck: My favorite since Sunset Tree, but not as captivating.
Most Serene Republic - Fantasick Impossibliss: Radiohead meets BSS in perfectly-long EP form.
Ella Mae Morse - Rocks: Simple and effective, but hardly rocks. Proto-rocks maybe.
Jimmy Eat World - Invented: I'm still a sucker for melody.
